Jeremiah William Adam died peacefully at home on August 26, 2020 after battling colorectal cancer for 3 years. Jeremiah was born on June 13th, 1989 in Langley, BC. He attended The King's School and was homeschooled. After graduating in 2006, Jeremiah went on to study Geomatics at the British Columbia Institute of Technology from 2006 - 2008. He obtained a diploma of Technology in Geomatics in 2008. Jeremiah worked on both the Golden Ears and Port Mann bridges as a Land Surveyor. He went on to work for both the Township of Langley and the City of Vancouver.

Jeremiah will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jessica, son Kaius, parents Christian and Gudrun, siblings Tanya (Peter), Joy, Ruth, and Hannah; nieces Tama and Sarah; nephews GianLuca, Lucien, Tavian and Tobias; aunts; uncles; cousins; friends and the communities he was a part of.

I Lift My Eyes Up

I lift my eyes up
Up to the mountains
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from You
Maker of Heaven
Creator of the earth
Oh, how I need You Lord
You are my only hope
You're my only prayer
So I will wait for You
To come and rescue me
Come and give me life


I had the pleasure of working with Jeremiah for a short period of time that he worked at Binnie, where both he and I were surveyors. Both he and I were of the same age and on similar paths in both our careers and lives. I have a very fond memory of him, he came across as a very pleasant, kind hearted person. I send my deepest condolences to Jeremiah's family and friends for their loss.

So sad to see Jeremiah go. A beautiful young man that Linda and I, Sarah and Samuel, and so many others had the privilege and joy of knowing. Our hearts groan with Jessica's and Chris and Gudrun's, Art and Tracey's and all the siblings. And little Kaius. No easy words here but we are comforted by the truth that "all things work for the good of those who are loving God and the called according to His purpose." (Romans 8) Tears are good, let them flow.

Jessica and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to you, that God will hold you up and give you peace and strength each day anew.
